With It You May Gain Wisdom

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

They don't have the honesty to tell you the truth?
I can't believe I am hearing 'you' say this!

When did you become an advocate of truth?
And who or what threatens your perception,
To finally accept it.
And what are you expecting as a benefit?
The repeating of corruption and deceit?

Well...
The process of truth,
Will be proven to be cost effective!
And with it you may gain wisdom.
However...
Believing you will pocket with truth as an asset,
May disappoint a greed you've been accustomed...
To feed with the ease of telling quick lies.
